Lego Borderlands

Having collected Lego for just about a year now, and having played Borderlands 2 regularly with my co-op partners for about 15 months, it was inevitable I’d mush the two together. So while a Lego Borderlands set/video game isn’t likely, at least I can indulge the fancy from time to time.

That’s No Moon…

My wonderful wife gave me the Lego Death Star exclusive kit this past Christmas. Rather than spend a solid two days gorging on building this awesome set, I decided to take my time and spread the construction love over the course of several days in 2-3 hour sessions.

Image of the Moment

Red Tail Hawk in flight, taken during our recent trip to Tennessee/North Carolina. This shot was a total accident as I hadn’t changed my settings…but I like the end result, as it has the look of a painting. Just thought I’d share.
